My sister has a teenage daughter.You see, I'm the kind of aunt who will jump in rescue for their defense if they had any kind of arguments with their mother. So once my sister told me that I would feel the same anxiety and be worried about their safety when I have kids especially daughters.
In that case, if I have a daughter I want her to learn martial arts. Instead of worrying about how the world gonna treat her, I will be assured that she has the ability to whack down anyone who bullies her. So that's the kind of ability that I want her to have. I want her to speak out her mind and never let life to intimidate her in any ways.
I want her to feel special about herself not by the way she dress up or by the way she looks.She needs to understand that beauty is in the eye of beholder,that no amount of cosmetic could shield a broken heart or a lost soul. I want her to treat herself with dignity and respect.I want her to fall in love with herself first because that's the only way to find eternal love.
When it comes to God, I want her to find Him within herself. No one should define the God in her heart. She should be kind but not with the intention that God will place her in heaven because it will sound like expecting something in return. Kindness should come naturally from heart and she should know where to draw the lines if its needed.
Of course the first gift from me would be a book.Somehow I believe she will inherit the love for books from me. I want her discover the secret world between pages of the book. I want her to write her own destiny and never regret any decisions she made in life because mistakes builds her up and memories makes her grow.
Most of all,I want to her to believe that her mother will always be a pillar of hope and support and home is just within the eye distance.
